Place of the Day: Vienna

It's time for another "place of the day" to highlight on a Thursday, and so here we go...to Vienna!


Outside of Switzerland, Austria is one of the countries I truly enjoy returning to.  Not sure if its the gemutlichkeit or just the atmosphere of being so close to the alps.  You can find the legacies of Beethoven, Freud, Klimt, and Mahler in Vienna, and there is never a shortage of musical offerings to experience.  Some notable things that can be visited include:

The Imperial Apartments - Home to Franz-Josef I and full of 19th and 20th century artifacts

The Treasury - Collection includes the crowns of the Holy Roman and Austrian empires

Vienna Boys Choir - At the Hofburgkapelle and linked to Austria since 1498, try to get a listen if you're able!
